For any of you who thought I may have been overreacting to our bat problems, I wasn't. Nope, not one bit. That $550 I spent earlier this year? Worth every penny. Why? Well, according to this article I found on the NPR website, "Many signs point to bats as the main source of Ebola."
Ebola, people. EBOLA.
So I have a suggestion - let's all agree to stop pointing out that bats eat tons of mosquitoes every minute, as if that makes up for their utter creepiness. Really, how anyone can defend the existence of these flying rodents is beyond me. I'm thinking that bats have just got some really good PR people on their side. So good, in fact, that even the scientist who KNOWS that bats carry Ebola is still trying to defend these creatures. "Let's not blame the wildlife," he says. He claims it isn't their fault; it's our fault for living in their habitat.
Hello? Someone go explain to these bats whose habitat is whose, all right? You don't see me trying to live outside in the trees where they fly around, do you? They're the ones who are choosing to live in MY HOUSE, roosting in my walls and pooping in my attic. What's up with all these science-y bat apologists, anyway?
Ebola - the main source of EBOLA. Yikes.
